A month after being sentenced to life in prison for the kidnapping, rape, and torture of a woman on Christmas Eve 1990, pre-Zuffa UFC punchline Joe Son once again made fucked-up headlines in October 2011 when he allegedly killed his cellmate, a wild-looking pedophile named Michael Thomas Graham.
Things have been pretty quiet on the Joe Son front since then. But now, TMZ is passing along word that Son is finally being charged with the murder of Graham, two years after the fact:
The guy who played shoe-throwing bad guy Random Task in “Austin Powers” has been charged with murder in the death of his prison cellmate, TMZ has learned … and prosecutors could pursue the death penalty.
The guy in the cross hairs is Joe Son, who was serving a life sentence in California’s Wasco State Prison for torturing a woman when he allegedly killed his 50-year-old cellmate in 2011.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ that Son — a former MMA fighter — killed Graham with a combination of kicks and punches. We’re told the brutality of the murder will be a factor when prosecutors decide if they should pursue the death penalty.
We’ll keep you updated when we learn more about Son’s ongoing murder case. Though if it were up to us, this turd would have been fried a long time ago.
